Men's & Women's basketball games offer fun for families with special promotions: Take a Kid to a Game, Think Pink & President's Day Celebration on the docket


Special promotions for fans of Fairfield University basketball will be offered throughout the month of February as fans will have an opportunity to watch the Stags with special twists in the coming weeks. The Fairfield University Athletic Marketing Office has planned ticket discounts and community service events to coincide with Fairfield University basketball.

The basketball doubleheader on February 10 has been designated "Take A Kid To A Game Day" at which all fans under the age of 12 will receive free admission to the two games when accompanied by a paying adult. The women will take on Manhattan at 1 p.m., followed by the Fairfield-Iona men's game at 3:30 p.m.

The Fairfield University community will participate in the "Think Pink" campaign to help raise awareness of breast cancer. All fans who wear pink attire to the game will receive a gift from Fairfield University athletics. Additionally, fans who make a financial contribution that afternoon will receive a ticket to the Monday, February 18th doubleheader. Attendees will also have an opportunity to enter a raffle that include prizes such as game-worn Think Pink shooting shirts which will be autographed by players and coaches, as well items from several supporting organizations. The doubleheader begins with the women hosting Siena at noon and the men playing Rider at 2 p.m.

The Stags will celebrate President's Day (February 18) by honoring anyone with the same last name of a president with half-price admission. Proper ID is required to gain the reduced admission price. The month concludes with a men's basketball game against Manhattan on February 29 at the Arena at Harbor Yard. The 7:30 p.m. game will allow all season ticket holders to redeem any unused tickets from the season for extra tickets that night. Tickets will be issued on a first-come, first-served basis and will be issued as close to the original seats at possible. Tickets will be of equal or lesser value with no upgrades.
